Coarsely chop the remaining leaves and stems into ½ inch pieces. If you are using scallions, cilantro or another vegetable, chop it up and add it to the choi. Wash the greens and get ready to toss them with the dressing.</p> <p>Sesame dressing ingredients</p> <p>2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar<br /> 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar<br /> 1 Tablespoon soy sauce<br /> ½ teaspoon sesame oil<br /> 2 Tablespoons canola oil<br /> 1 ½ teaspoons agave syrup (or honey in a pinch)</p> <p>Add all dressing ingredients to a bottle and shake, shake, shake.</p> <p>The “Crunchies”</p> <p>1 teaspoon canola or mild-tasting oil<br /> 1 bag of ramen noodles (organic or otherwise – use only the noodles, not the flavor packet)<br /> 1/3 cup slivered almonds</p> <p>Prepare the Crunchies:</p> <p>Lay an unopened bag of ramen noodles on the counter or floor and whack them with a meat tenderizer until they are fully crushed. Careful, the bag might pop if you get too excited while you do this! Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and add the oil. When it is warm, pour in the crushed noodles, discarding the flavor packet. Add the almonds. Stir occasionally and cook until the noodles are just golden brown.</p> <p>Combine everything in a salad bowl, toss and enjoy!</p>
